LAST CALL: Michael Ogilvie spent the last morning as Clark County’s public art specialist making calls to keep projects in progress move along without him. New ideas will have to wait. Then he stepped out for a quick lunch, but stopped in the lobby of Winchester Cultural Center when he saw the latest issue of Vegas Seven. His last day on the job saw "Centered," the public art programming he guided that took over county medians, be featured on the cover of the weekly. “Cool," Ogilvie said with a grin local artists know. He picked up a copy and headed out the door.

"If Las Vegas wants to take its public art to the next level, it needs to keep the ingenious artists living here engaged and employed. This will grow the creative economy, and the larger the creative economy becomes, the greater its impact."
